Vegan Applesauce Cake


I have several "go to" recipes and this applesauce cake has been one of my "go to" desserts since the beginning of my vegan journey. It's so simple and doesn't require much other than measuring a few ingredients. I've taken it to work several times and it flies off the plate. My family loves it too!
